Rondo Out 7-10 Days?

Via NESN.com: A source has informed NESN.com's Liam Martin that starting Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo could miss seven to 10 days with a sprained ankle. The measure is believed to be precautionary, as Rondo finished Friday night's game against the Cavaliers after suffering the injury in the first quarter. These injuries are really starting to piss...

Orlando Should Be Embarrassed

The Celtics came in without arguably their two most important players in Rondo and KG.  The Celtics were held to their lowest first half point total of the season.  To top it all off… the C's lost Glen Davis to a sprained ankle in the 3rd quarter. And despite all that… and all the reasons... [More]

Rondo Out, Davis Vindicated

Stephon Marbury might get the start. Rondo sprained his right ankle in Friday night's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and had “pretty bad'' swelling, according to Rivers. The coach would not full commit to Rondo's absence, but all indications were that Rondo will not play. “It's sore. It swelled up pretty bad,'' Rivers said. “I... [More]

Karl’s A Perk Fan

This came completely out of nowhere… but it's actually kinda funny the day after Kendrick Perkins was used as an example of dirty play.  George Karl thinks Perk should be on the All-Defensive team.  This is what he said when he was asked about why the C's were so good on D. “Commitment and Kevin...

The Celtics… Dirty?

That's what Tom Ziller is saying on FanHouse today. That flagrant foul on Anderson Varejao might be the dirtiest NBA play since … Perkins violently threw Jason Maxiell to the floor in January. Is it a pattern yet? Doc Rivers and Tom Thibodeau haven't told their players to decapitate the opponent, I'm sure. But the... [More]

Double Trouble

Double Trouble

Alternate headline:  How not having KG helped the Celtics beat Cleveland. It comes from a simple little quote in Scott Souza's piece today. "I expected them to have a hell of a game," Rivers insisted. "If you are going to bring a big (man) away from the bucket (to double Allen), and you have two... [More]

Prettiest Passer In The League

All you need to know about that photo (click for larger image) is that Rondo got the ball to Perk.  Forget the fact that it looks like he's 5 feet off the floor or that he looks like he's 5' 2" next to Big Z… just know that with two of the biggest players on... [More]

Best Win Of The Year

There are so many places to start with this one, and I'm gonna start with Leon Powe.  With no KG and Big Baby getting tossed for a flagrant 2 (more on that in a minute), Leon Powe stepped up with a HUUUUUUGE game off the bench.  20 points and 11 rebounds in about 25 minutes... [More]
